Default Oops!...I Did It Again

I get the Gun Broker auctions emailed to me and I was looking at it the other day and came across a decent deal on a Colt Combat Commander... I just couldn't resist so my FFL called me this evening told me it had arrived and to come get it, I'll go at lunch break pick it up run by the house clean'er up and head for the range. Here's a stock photo of it, I'll post more tomorrow

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Stainless steel just don't care for the LW, I looked at the Wiley Clapp but it has the LW receiver... but I sure do like the look just need the weight.

Will do, as soon as I take possession. I'm still waiting for the background check to clear, it has already taken longer for the BC then the purchase (on-line) AND THE SHIPPING TO MY FFL. I just don't understand why here in VA the instant BC has never been instant for me, I've bought 11 firearms in the 10 years I've lived here in VA and not 1 purchase has cleared instantly or even within 4hrs usaully it's over night but has been as long as 4 days. I thought once I got my CHP it might speed things up a bit but it hasn't.
Some have suggested that because I have bought most of my firearms from Budsgunshop.com, GunsAmerica.com and most recently Gun Broker.com that's why it takes so long, but I have waited overnight for 3 different guns
I bought at 2 different gun stores Okay I'll hop down off my soapbox and get back to work
